, former ambassador to the united nations. let me turn to you first. is it your sense that a deal has been reached between hamas and israel? >> because israel has accomplished the objectives, take out the missiles in gaza. we think this iall about israel and ham and gaza. it's about israel having the ability six months down the road said, if it feels it needs to, take a prmptive strike against the iran nuclear strike and not have fox business retaliate directlyagainst israel. why are they doing what they're doing? that want to take at 10 pounds of missiles, particularly long-range missiles capable of reaching the population centers. and by doing that, a pre-emptive attack in order to have a preemptive attack, and i think they have accomplished that and are ready to make a deal. lou: saying that they are condioning the battleground and have eliminated, if you will, the right flank. do you concur? >> i hope that is right, but i don't think so. the fact is that the iranians have been smuggling these long-range rockets and for some time. we thought they might have the stability really going ba
in benghazi. u.s. ambassador to united nations susan rice weighed in on her controversial remarks on benghazi just a short time ago, joining us now is fox news correspondent katherine harrage. >> thank you lou. the ambassador to u.n. took the questions it was really quite unexpected she got two on the ben been scandal. and here is her response. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and scarily on the information provided to me by the intelligence community, i made clear that the information was preliminary. and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers, everyone, particularly the intelligence community, has worked in good faith to provide the best assessment based on the information available. >> reporter: tonight this comes less than a week after a classified session on capitol hill where fox news was told james clapper, head of u.s. intelligence community of definite his team did not make controversial changes to the talking points on benghazi provided to rice, critics say that changes including stripping out word al qaeda a ha
, despite the involvement of the united nations secretary general and others, trying to mediate, it looks like this could turn into a ground operation which the israelis have threatened within a matter of days. what is your outlook? >> i think that is certainly a possibility. but you have to step back for a minute. who supplies hamas? it is iran. you have to look at iran's role in this current conflict. certainly, egypt has a hand for mohammed morsi and his disastrous economic policy. but what it has done is taken the nuclear issue off of the table. let's face it, iran has been at war for over 33 years. they conducted another act of war just a week or so ago when they fired an unmanned drone. as usual, we did not come forth to meet the challenge. lou: thank you very much. as you point out, the national media and in this context of the context between israel and hamas, taking note of the president's agenda and the absence of china on this specific event. admiral, we always appreciate talking to you. lou: joining us now is congressman louie gohmert. he was just reelected to a fifth term and
to the united nations in 2009 and said any world order elevates one nation among the other won't survive. he really i think came into office believing the world is safe fer america is less powerful. >> greta: but what was done. this administrations nts are in a position where they try to maintain or manage. you can't really correct any of these crisis in the world? >> he is not doing a very good job of maintaining or managing. to the extent he has success, whether it was the killing of osama bin laden, the drone program, that is building on programs that were started under the bush administration. at every turn whether you are talking about not leading any kind of stay behind force in iraq or announcing a date certain for our withdrawal from afghanistan, not supporting the people in iran when they rose up in 2009 in the green revolution, walking away from what solid support of democracy in the bush administration treating the war on terror like law enforcement officer but determining that we're going to bring terrorists on american soil. >> greta: it didn't happen. >> it didn't happen becaus
diplomatic issues. in 1971, the united nations in 1969. they were in the area and we have been re-integrating everything. for the first 75 years, we have never received the people's republic of china and the u.n. report -- they changed this position on the island. and to me, i don't want to get into that too many details. frankly, this is not the heart of the issue. china is trying to advance. there is an issue with japan. from japan to taiwan, the philippines, this is from the viewpoint of china. china has openly expressed their views on this in maritime security. and those are part of the reality. so this is a kind of comprehensive strategy to advance. >> that is an important point. what you're basically saying is that this is about power and the power -- china is clearly becoming more powerful. you are seeing lines being challenged. i remember talking to george soros once after he broke the back of england -- i'm sorry, broke the bank of england. what he saw as a hedge fund manager basically drove so hard against the wind that fundamentally the institutional power on the bank o
hurricane sandy as a poster child for global warming as the united nations and al gore is now doing, that makes as little sense as you can possibly imagine. we are at 30 or 40 years historic lows in activity and going the longest period since the civil war since a major hurricane to hit the united states and if anything, it would prevent atlantic hurricane from making landfall and the world meet logical society said this is no evidence of hurricane footprint in human activity so fore that to be a poster child they are devoid the science, if we have quotes from globe warming activists waiting, saying we need a disaster, using words we are "cheering them" we have to wish for a lot horrid things in order to get the public alarmed like they tried to do with hurricane katrina. >>neil: the wind at their back, comments from new york governor cuomo, this is indisputable proof of dangers of community change and what happens, so, when they use american politicians to make their point, is it the next step to get more american money to rectify this point? >>guest: what they trying to do and pre
now, despite the involvement of the united nations secretary-general and others, in trying to mediate, it looks like it could well turn into a ground operation, which the israelis have threatened within a matter of days. what are your -- what is your outlook? >> well, i think that certainly is a possibility, but, lou you have to step back from this. who supplies hamas? it is iran. and, you've got to look aa iran's role in the current conflict. certainly, egypt has a hand from morsi and his disastrous economic policy. but, what it has done for iran, it certainly has taken the iran nuclear issue off of the table. you can't even find it in the paper today. and, let's face it. iran has been at war with the united states for over 33 years, they conducted another act of war, just a week or so ago when they fired on our unmanned drone. as usual, we did not come forth to meet the challenge. >> lou: admiral, thank you very much and as you point out, the national media, not taking note of iran in this context. the conflict between israel and hamas. not taking note of the president's agenda and

job at the united nations and is highly qualified for any number of positions in the foreign policy arena. >> reporter: does the preside president -- >> i have no announcements. >> reporter: she's widely believed to be at the top of the list to replace secretary of state hillary clinton who's said she will not stay for a second term. ambassador rice came under fire for suggesting the benghazi attack that killed four americans was a spontaneous event. >> what we think transpired in benghazi is opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> reporter: much later, the administration labeled it a terrorist attack, even though officials pointed to early language the president used referencing, quote, acts of terror. republicans pounced, focusing on the possible nomination of rice as secretary of state. >> we will do whatever is necessary to block the nomination. >> i am dead set on making sure we don't promote anybody that was an essential player in the benghazi debacle. >> reporter: we have been reaching out to senator mccain's office all day trying to g
the last few days about how the nation of egypt is really the key connection for the united states to both sides in the fight right now. and that was driven home today by the fact that when the cease-fire was announced, it was announced by u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton, and egypt's foreign minister at a press conference in egypt. >> in the days ahead, the united states will work with partners across the region to consolidate this progress, improve conditions for the people of gaza, provide security for the people of israel. ultimately, every step must move us toward a comprehensive peace, for all the people of the region. >> the leader of hamas held his own press conference in cairo today, during which he said that while his side agrees to the cease-fire, his fighters have, quote, their hands on the trigger. in jerusalem, the israeli prime minister, benjamin net ya hyan hew, also spoke about the cease-fire agreement. look at this. "prime minister benjamin netanyahu this evening spoke with u.s. president barack obama and acceded to his recommendation to give the egyptian cease-fir

holliday the former u.s. ambassador for special political affairs to the united nations. he's currently the president and ceo of the meridian international center, which is a public diplomacy organization. ambassador let me start with the news of the shooting along the border between gas zba and israel. how troubling is an incident like this? and how perilous is it, really, for this fragile, fragile cease-fire? >> well, good morning. the local level, it's obviously very troubling, and there are, you know, lives at stake, and there's this delicate balance on the cease-fire. but in the bigger picture, this is -- there's a lot invested in this cease-fire, at the political level and it appears to be at this point more of the typical border incident category kind of problem rather than a directed violation from either side of the cease-fire. i think that's what we're going to have to watch for is what happens next. >> a lot of credit ins are looking at this agreement as a short-term fix, a band-aid that will last as long as, say, hamas manages to rearm and then perhaps start shooting rockets
into the streets of gaza city to celebrate. >> susan rice going public. the u.s. ambassador to the united nations is now defending the comments she made in the aftermath of the september 11th terrorist attack in benghazi. rice explaining why she initially suggested that the attacks were sparked by protests over that anti-muslim film. >> ilied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> rice says she believes everyone, especially intelligence officials, were acting in good faith to provide the best assessment of the events in benghazi to the american people. >> sectarian violence erupting in pakistan. a series of bombings has killed at least 31 people. in the deadliest attack, a taliban suicide bomber killed 23 people in an attack on a shiite muslim procession in rawalpindi. this is the holiest month of the year for shiites. >>> and this picture cost two women their jobs. take a close look there. one apparently made an obscene gesture at ar
this to supporters on saturday. we're on our way to the united nations. there are lots of states supporting us who support peace and justice. all the factions are with us in going to the united nations. do you -- there are some diplomatic snags, i think it's fair to say. >> yes. >> abbas's office says hamas supports the move. hamas spokesperson said in the jerusalem post, in fact, they don't support the move. explain to me how you're going to be able to navigate this. >> yes. no, we're navigating it very easily because the official statement came out today. yesterday there was a bit of confusion from different hamas sources. but they called the president today and told him he's fully supportive of this move. the hamas official spokesperson came out and said hamas as a whole supports this move and stands behind it. so we really have unanimous total support for going to the u.n., the general assembly, and for getting the application to state status, enhancing our presence and enhancing, of course, our internal political realities as well as our international standing. and getting the recognition of
themselves. this isyoxymoron. this is an absurdity. this is a vital national security interest that iran doesn't have nuclear wps weapons, but we can't want that more than anybody else. is this really a vital interest of the united states. in which case we have to throw our weight behind it and tailor our policies around it with less deference to domestic -- >> what does that mean? in a concrete sense what does it look like? >> in a concrete sense, it means not letting the israelis drag us into overreacting to palestinian diplomatic moves at the u.n. it means understanding that we have a choice here that the palestinians are facing a choice between the p.a. and the plo. their leadership in ramallah. and their strategy, versus hamas's strategy of arms struggle and we and the israelis play a huge role in determining how that goes. one of the reasons that hamas is, is may be able to spin this in a huge and lasting political victory unlike last time. unlike in 2008-2009, is the lack of contrast with the west bank and the reason for that is that western aid, american and european aid has been
.s. ambassador to the united nations. she's per sued u.s. interests including passage to revolutions, strict sanctions on iran and north korea. white house aids say she is favored by president obama to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice's record, doing her job doesn't matter much to senator john mccain. what matters to the republican from arizona is rice went on television in the days after the deadly attacks in libya that killed chris stephens and three other americans and repeated the information the cia provided at the time. >> susan rice should have known better. if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she has a lot of explaining to do. >> if appointed clears her of wrong doing besides not being very bright. i would do everything in my power from her being the united states secretary of state. >> i suppose i understand the republicans feel the administration hasn't paid a high political price for the benghazi attack. rice's performance on a few sunday shows should disqualify her. the president addressed this after he was reelected. >> if senator mccain and senato
? ambassador is former ambassador to the united nations for special political affairs, are they better or worse now? >> they are in a process. president morsi's move was clearly an overreach. where they are now is negotiating a constitution. what opponents of morsi will say in shaping this constitution they will put in to place into effect a permanent of dominance for the muslim brotherhood. that is why they are so up in arms because they fought against mubarek for many years. >> gregg: isn't that what is happening here. he has usurped all power, he has pronounced these untouchables and new fair oh of egypt and they are calling him. tens of thousands have taken the street to denounce morsi and burning the offices of muslim brotherhood in two cities. where do you see this going, ambassador? >> there was broad support for mubarek after and many people in the streets of cairo and egypt think that the former regime got off lightly. with that said, i think there is a widespread ceiling they are entering a new phase in which the fundamental institutions and democratic protections are in jeopardy. tha
to answer that, of course, is nadia bilchik. good morning. >> good morning. >> it actually is united mexican states. >> exactly. >> how many people say that. >> you never say i'm going to united mexican states nation. you just say i'm going to mexico. so calderon would like it to be part of his legacy because he leaves office next saturday but he wants to change the name just to mexico. >> so i guess the question is, though, why challenge it. >> why is it so important to him? >> because it became the name in 1824 when inspired by american independence leaders, they said if it's the united states of america and they've done so much in terms of independence, we should have united mexican states. >> so what is the like lie hood of this getting done. you said he's leaving office saturday. >> he said he doesn't want a name that emulated another country and that no one uses on a daily basis. and theness chas are very unlikely because enrico penneta becomes president next week, you don't think it's going to be high on his list. >> jay. they have drugs, violence, a whole lot of things. >> certainly.
rice of the united nations for going out on television and saying that story. clearly was not true, from what we know now, but guys like you are being criticized by, for instance, members of the congressional black caucus. they say that you and john mccain are sexist and racist as well for criticizing ambassador rice. >> well, when you can't answer the question, you attack the questioner. the only color i'm worried about when it comes to benghazi is red. blood red. the death of four americans. what motivates senator mccain and myself is that we were in libya last september. we came back and wrote an op ed piece that if we don't form a national army to replace these militias, libya is going to break apart. and the sad story here is not just the four dead americans, which is heart breaking, the libyan people want to move forward and this leading from behind by obama, we've done nothing to help them mr. an army to replace the militia. >> steve: absolutely. we've simply got to get to the bottom of this because as you said, four americans are dead here. senator lindsey graham, joining u
's choice to take president clinton's slot. the united nations had nothing to do with this. it would've been a better choice to go out on the sunday shows and maybe the secretary of defense or the secretary of state or the director of national intelligence, a very odd choice in my decision. i do believe it was her responsibility to know the origins of these talking points. i think that should've been something she should have been asking questions about. martha: you can go in front of a microphone and say whatever is on the paper without taking responsibility. let me ask you about the administration. do you think that they wanted this way? you think they want the patriots scandal to happen? confusion among americans? they are blaming james clapper and susan rice. >> the bottom line is they feel they can deal with us now but they didn't want it to happen before the election. now i think they feel somewhat insulated because it's after the election and that's the shame of the thing speech you now the president is saying don't blame susan rice, blame me. make it so much, peter brookes. happy tha
